Hey guys- I'm thinking about switching out my boom with a boomlet on my 17SE. Not looking forward to spending over 100$ to get a new one. Does anyone in the PA or NY area have one they'd be willing to sell? Or anyone willing to ship for that matter? Thanks.

Find someone with a broken boom or bow foil from a 17 Sport - it's the exact same extrusion.

That's exactly what I'm hoping for. I'd like to eventually get enough parts (or a kit) to convert it to a sport, but I haven't got that kind of money yet. So I figured the boomlet would be a good start since my boom outhaul needs replacing anyway and 'cause my girlfriend is light enough to go on the boat with me.

For that matter, I'd bet a H14 or H16 boom or side bar could also be made to work with a little modification.
